Online Submission, Paper submitted at the Conference on "Promoting Social-Emotional Education: Practitioners and Researchers Exploring Evidence Based Practice" (Izmir, Turkey, Sep, 2009)
Students gain many skills by observing, following and imitating others. Today one of the skills which students need most is managing emotions. The models who the elementary students imitate most are the teachers in their learning process. Therefore, teachers have an important role in students' gaining the skill of emotion management. From this point of view, teachers should exemplify the skill of emotion management well. Hence, this survey aims to reveal the relationship between fourth and fifth grade students and teachers' emotional intelligence perception. The data of the survey was gathered from the fourth and fifth grade students and teachers in the schools in central district of Izmit chosen by chance with the emotional intelligence perception scale of Wong and Law (2002). At the end of the survey, a meaningful and positive connection was found out between the students and teachers' emotional intelligence perception. It is seen that teachers' emotional intelligence management skill affects the emotional intelligence skill which students use positively and is an important explanatory variable. Accordingly, enhancing teachers' skilful use of emotional management has an effect on the improvement of students' own emotional management. (Contains 5 tables.)
